We’ve always been huge fans of Netgear’s Arlo home security cameras, and we still continue to use them ourselves. But the popularity of Arlo’s wire-free cameras has spawned a new wave of similar offerings and some of them are quite good. In fact, the Blink XT Home Security Camera System is just as good as Arlo, but at a tiny fraction of the price. And what’s more, Blink XT cameras have 2-year battery life instead of 2 or 3 months like Arlo!
